I know I am not a lousy writer and I know my ideas and work isn’t worthless.
More than 19 people have contacted me via social media to discuss the Eric Schmidt article so I know the number who have read the article is inaccurate.
As to the other, Medium’s public statements are absolutely opposite to what is promoted via this platform’s “algorithm” or whatever it is.
Why would anyone continue writing on this platform under such circumstances?
I invite people who do not who I am to read this article and consider whether or not FOUR people all of whom are personal friends are the only people who would find it of interest (again, more people than that have contacted me about it, so again, the number is incorrect).
I have more incoming readers from Reddit, my own social media sharing, and platforms like Yahoo News than have ever come from any Medium algorithm.
Look at that above. Just look.
If I didn’t have a decent character I would be depressed. SF Ali — nothing I have ever written except the Bernie Sanders bumper sticker article was ever featured by @Medium. I don’t know your personal experience but my problem appears to be that I don’t write about myself, I write about the larger world.
Oh, and I’m not employed by David Brock “Media Matters” or a vocal critic of Donald Trump’s tiny hands instead of his policies and racist attacks on others and fearful administration.
